CGC Welcomes Comic Book Artist and Writer Frank Cho for an In-House Private Signing Event

Posted on 10/27/2021

CGC looks forward to hosting Frank Cho at headquarters!

CGC is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting the critically acclaimed comic book writer and illustrator Frank Cho for an exclusive In-House Private Signing event! Cho is an Emmy Award-winning comic book creator who is best-known for his newspaper comic strip series, Liberty Meadows. In addition to signing, Cho will be offering his incredible Remarques and sketches for purchase. An extremely limited amount of Remarques and sketches will be available and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. See examples and pricing details below!

Cho began his career in the comic book industry working on some of Marvel’s most popular books such as Spider-Man, The Mighty Avengers, Hulk, X-Men, Savage Wolverine and Shanna the She-Devil. Some of Cho's most beloved art comes from his highly acclaimed Harley Quinn covers for DC Comics. His creator-owned projects include Fight Girls, Skyborne and World of Payne.

“We are honored to host such an influential figure in the comic industry at our headquarters for this special In-House Private Signing,” said Brittany McManus, CGC Signature Series Director. “We cannot wait to see all of the submissions that we will be receiving for this event, and with a limited amount of Remarque and sketches available, be sure to check out the details before the spots are gone!”
